about cyprus and what they'r they are doing, thet off this decision to tax or confiscate the bank accounts, but what happens now? how will they please those at the imf and the european union? big questions remain and that is why you see the red arrows. but just squeezing out a gain for now. lauren: investors also applied to the safety of u.s. treasuries today rallied for a third day pushing the yield on the 10-year note to a two-week low. david: without the fed announced what they are going to announce on wednesday. oil closing below $93 per barrel, this is the first fall for crude in four sessions, dropping 1.7% settling at $92.16 per barrel. lauren: and you have to look at the retailer's underperforming the market today especially the key names. american eagle, abercrombie and fitch, all falling greater than 3%. david: the stocks are much the same. rejecting the confiscation of bank accounts but there are things going on here in america that are not as friendly. the chief research officer joining us with a disturbing new report, one that shows the united states is falling behind

challenged him on spending, taxes, a balanced budget and even closing the white house to public tours. for more insight on what the someone like we're joined by congress warm candice miller. miss miller, thank you. what was your particular gripe at mr. obama today and how tough of that meeting? >> well, you know, i guess it's his charm offensive and actually i think it's working because i think he's becoming charmed by the house republicans. >> but you went after him. >> i asked him a question that we are just getting bombarded with here on capitol hill. i said mr. president we're all dealing with sequestration, the house members have taken a 5% than 6% and now a 8% cut to our own budgets. we're dealing with the sequester best we can. no one has ever thought or made any mention about closing the capitol or capitol visitor's center or this beautiful house office building you see in the rear. nobody said that. mr. president, if you have to close the white house to tours and you need money take it out of our hide that's exactly what i said to him. i said we don't have to come to the whit
if republicans agreed to new tax increases. we have heard this before. however, the white house put a positive smpin on the meeting calling it a good substantive exchange and called it a good conversation. the president admitted more with abc news there is more to be done. >> ultimately it may be that the differences are just too wide. if their position is we can't do any revenue or we can only do revenue if we gut medicare or gut social security or medicaid. if that is the position we probably will not be able to get a deal. >> if your piece up on politico read conflicting reports, some say it was more of the same from the president and others say it was a step in the right direction for him to come up to the hill and visit bus. anything come out of this meeting yesterday and the ones that will follow today and the rest of the week? >> i would just replay that clip over and over and over again and that tells you everything you need to know about the next year. the president wants tax increases and he does not want to do a bill with big changes in entitlement reforms. republicans don't want ta
to raise taxes in virginia in order to deal with transportation problems. it's also worth noting that people are noting the absence of those two, and the presence of people like mitt romney who has said he's never going to run again, and a lot of republicans think he has admitted ran a campaign with some flaws along the donald trump and sarah palin raises questions about the absence of mcdonnell and chris christie. there will be a straw poll here. it doesn't mean a heck of a lot other than republicans are already keeping score. and one more thing, jon. yesterday when we were talking about deliberate irs taxes, i said one in ten were delinquent, it's actually one in a hundred. i don't want the irs angry at me. so made a mistake and cleaned it up. jon: all right. one in one hundred, and as you said, we'll see who shows up to the next cattle call for conservatives. carl cameron, thank you. jenna: well, an outpouring of reaction to the newly-elected leader of the catholic church. pope francis planning an inaugural mass in the sistine chapel. he told a crowd of some 100,000 people in

this week showing a wide gap, indeed, remains over spending and taxes. plans on the table both sides are taking to the airwaves to try to make their cases. peter doocy is live in washington. peter, does it look like either side is ready to give any ground? >> reporter: it depends on which interview you with a watched this morning, john boehner told abc news president obama already got the new taxes he wanted back in january so more taxes shouldn't even be on the table this time around, but another remember can bob corker indicated on fox that new taxes could be part of the discussion if democrats agree to serious entitlement reform. >> think republicans, if they true entitlement reform, would be glad to look at tax reform that generates additional revenues. that doesn't mean increasing rates. it means closing loop homes and arranging our tax system so we have economic growth. i think we've been saying that from day one. >> reporter: the house budget committee chairman paul ryan says he thinks president's trip to capitol hill to meet with republicans is a good start but he thinks the
with your tax dollars. now more than 300,000 federal contractors are dodging paying their taxes if you can believe this story. a democratic lawmaker is going after those workers and she will join us next. bill: also this picture became a symbol of washington waste after taxpayers paid for a lavish las vegas conference. government workers attending there including this guy in the hot tub. wait until you hear what this federal agency is doing now. this is $100,000. we asked total strangers to watch it for us. thank you so much. i appreciate it. i'll be right back. they didn't take a dime. how much in fees does your bank take to watch your money? if your bank takes more money than a stranger, you need an ally. ally bank. your money needs an ally. >> announcer: meet mary. she loves tohop online with her debit ca and so does bill, an identity thf who stole mary's identity, took over her bank accountand stole her hard-earned money. unfortunately, millions of ericans just like you learn misplaced information to wreak havoc on your life. this is identity theft and no one helps stop it better than
way, both by smart cuts, by closing all of those tax loopholes for high-income people. by the way, mitt romney and paul ryan talked about during the campaign -- those tax breaks are all still there. by eliminating those tax breaks, we can take a balanced approach to reducing the long-term deficit. which is an issue. but you shouldn't sacrifice economic growth now, on the altar of deep cuts and an austerity philosophy. >> i want to bring the panel in because you know, the congressman talks about making smart cuts now. what's in it for democrats to do any grand bargaining at all. any savings that would be applied in cutting the budget, would not be applied to their priorities. it's not as if you're going to reduce government spending on x and spend it more on the poor, spend it more on things democrats care b. why are democrats arguing for a budget at all? >> you and i don't agree on this, joanne. i think long-term, as congressman van holland says, you have to create a sustainable budget path. with the baby boomers, retirement and all sorts of other huge coming costs, we need to hav
with spending and tax increases. on the other end of this how do you suggest that president obama somehow come and meet him in the middle? >> i'm not sure the budget is coming out of the house as much as any new revenues to solve the budget problems. by the way, i think we could learn something from the vatican if you lock everybody in a room with 500-year-old plumbing, we might get a deal here. charles: you know what? i tell you what, i'm for it. i thiik that's the most bipartisan thing that will be said all day long. on the budget situation, you know, it's interesting because obviously the president has taken a different tact here recently going into the sequester deal and sort of went to the people to make his case and the country's not falling apart. sequestration might have been a ploy, if you will, to sort of put the g.o.p. in a box, but seems to be working against the president and might be changing the whole tenor of this debate. >> well, i think the issue on sequestration, i think the president did sort of overestimate the effects and what i'm seeing is that it's having serious effect
are always trying to protect taxes or wealthy people? is that a problem out there with the rank-and-file voters? >> no, i mean -- i don't think so. i think that's obviously a misperception that's become a real perception by the public. but i think we have to talk about things in ways that people can relate to. i mean, if you're talking about taxes and taxing small businesses, you have to talk about the fact that if -- if -- if our small businessman has to pay more money to the government, then he's going to have less money to pay to his ememployers, and the ememployers will have less money to send kids to the school of their choice. i think it's a matter of talking about the debt differently. not just we are in imminent danger in a debt crisis in this country. but what does that mean to people? it means that our government is growing so fast and it's becoming so expensive that we're making payments to our credit cards that we can't afford, which means we have to keep -- we'll keep having this debate about needing more revenue to the government. well, that means less money in peo

(scream). >> brian: that is great. >> steve: oh, man. meet the anchor who got the surprise of her life on live television. >> brian: that is awesome. >> steve: it is. "fox & friends" hour two for tuesday starts right now. that's why you got to be really careful. we're very trusting of the people behind the scenes who put things in the teleprompter. >> what's funny is it took her a second, you know, fox anchor is being proposed -- oh it came out and then she realized. that's what happens with breaking news. >> brian: you se
is where they can compromise on fundamental disagreements, including taxes. >> you know, again, if the president wants to let our unwillingness to raise taxes get in the way, then we're not going to be able to set differences aside and focus on what we agree on. and my takeaway was that. >> i thought that we had a very frank and candid exchange of ideas. and frankly, i think it was productive. we have a spending problem. we have to attack the spending. and the president understands, yeah, we've got some long-term spending that we need to deal with, but he's going to hold hostage the fact that he wants to raise taxes on the american people again. >> last night, the president addressed organizing for action, the group run by many of his former top operatives to help advance the president's agenda. the president downplayed his new efforts to work with members on the hill. >> over the last several weeks, the press here in washington's been reporting about obama's charm offensive. well, you know, the truth of the matter is, all i've been doing is just calling up folks and trying to
. republicans falsely claim democratic budget increases taxes by $1.5 trillion. as you know the republicans have spent years pressuring democrats to write a budget so they can criticize it and attack it -- so they are assuming the sequestration stays in place which everybody thinks is dumb. so if we're just going to have these fault math arguments i don't know how we're going to get anything done, do you? >> and the false math goes even further, stephanie. their budget wants to reduce the rates on the top wage earners, but they don't tell you how they are going to do it. but in the end it give people who make over a million dollars a decrease in taxes every year. so $200,000 more in tax breaks for the richest -- >> that sounds fair. >> it makes no sense. and then when you ask how they are going to do it? they still protect the tax exemptions for companies who send jobs overseas oil companies, corporate jets -- it's almost too hard to debate something that is this silly. >> stephanie: i know you new there, but do you see any way out of this, that we we -- literally are s
